Catch 22 with Tez Ilyas, Steve Harris, Lindsey Davies & MC Mandy Knight
Our MC Mandy Knight is a true dame of British stand-up comedy. The first female comedian to compere that bastion of old-school stand-up The Comedy Store, our Mandy has been breaking down barriers all her life.
Mandy Knight has headlined all over the world and has deservedly scooped the Best Female Comedian title at a host of different awards ceremonies over the years, including most recently the Time Out Best Female Comic gong.
‘Inspired comedy’ Time Out
You're going to love Steve Harris. Quick fire, crowd pleasing material that mixes musical comedy with smart as a whip one-liners. Having supported the likes of Johnny Vegas, Peter Kay and Lee Evans, Steve comes highly recommended from the heavy weights of comedy themselves.
Fancy dancing, quick one-liners and a whole lot of charisma - Daily Post
Quite simply, fantastically funny – BBC
Tez Ilyas is one of the stars of hit sitcom Man Like Mobeen (BBC Three) and has appeared on Mock the Week (BBC Two), The Last Leg (C4), Live From the BBC (BBC Two), Live from the Comedy Store (Comedy Central), Kevin Hart’s Live from Montreal (LOL Network), Virtually Famous (E4), The Now Show (BBC Radio 4). He has just completed a successful nationwide tour with his solo show ‘ Teztify’. His debut show ‘TezTalks’ sold out a run at Soho Theatre and was adapted into a series for BBC Radio 4. He is destined for stardom!
"Ilyas has a slickness more reminiscent of US comics, and the gags to back it up” - The Guardian
Lindsey Davies is a rising star on the UK's comedy circuit, and uses a cutting, sharp wit with dark humour as she jests about her life as a single mother and the stresses of dating.
''Took to the stage like a veteran. Had 1500 bikers laughing and baying for more. Definitely one to watch.'' - Smacked Arse Comedy
